that lies ahead. >> that's president obama delivering his victory speech on election night. the race wasn't even close, despite the poor state of the american economy. maybe mitt romney never had a chance. his fellow contenders feasted on one of their own during the primaries. isn't the american way that if somebody gives you a smack on the nose you eventually have to smack them back. isn't it time now for you to accept that this negativity has pounded you into a position where much as you would like to keep it positive, isn't it time you got the old gingrich fist out and gave romney a good old smack? >> harry truman in his great re-election campaign when he was so far behind that gallup quit taking polls in mid september, went after dewey and crowds would yell out give him hell, harry. and he yelled back, no, i just tell the truth and it hurts like hell. i think romney's record is so bad, he's clearly a moderate, he's done so many things that are indefensible in the republican primary. it would be okay in a democratic primary but in a republican primary it's indefensible. all i have to d

divide. it is a proxy war. the question is, can you afford, as the united states -- their interests -- the obama administration decided it will not supply legal aid, certainly no troops on the ground or air power like we saw with libya. they have taken a pretty hands- off approach. the idea that we can do nothing, as this starts to draw in all of its neighbors, is a very difficult stance to hold onto f or two years. host: the decision to downsize the defense department -- guest: it is very much part of a retrenchment or restoration doctrine that you would take off the table very manpower- intensive wars with regime iraq andike we had in th afghanistan. there are a lot of military experts who support that. we have exhausted our armed forces with beast two very costly costly counterinsurgency wars. let's not do that dosh with these -- with these two very costly counterinsurgency wars. let's not do that wit. they have adopted a much more discrete response to the terrorist threat -- discretet response to the terrorist threat. host: the us is still spending more on defense than the top 1

something done. here in the united states, through a system of checks and balances, president obama can veto legislation that's passed in congress, but he needs to work with congress if he hopes to sign laws that he supports. meej the u.s. supreme court can declare laws unconstitutional even though the other two barrages have passed them. in great britain they have a system where power is concentrated in the legislature with few check, a party can form a government, a cabinet of ministers headed by the prime minister. but if the party with the most seats holds less than an absolute majority it tries to form a coalition government with other parties that are seated n inme inment. so long as the government has the backing of a parliament majority, it's sure of passing anything it wants into law in the united states. not so in the united states. americans elected a democrat to the white house and the republican majority to the house of representatives. the u.s. is no stranger to gridlock and fiscal cliff negotiations were just another frustrating example. my good friend, richard quest, host of

each of you. will the united states get its act together? by getting its act together, i mean, will congress and president obama be able to enact a series of measures that will stabilize the american economy for the future? >> i'm going to say yes. i'm just going to say yes. i think 2013 is the year where obama feels strong enough and has learned enough lessons and the country understands what is at stake very fundamentally and the economics are starting to get better. manufacturing is coming back. it's actually coming back from offshore to onshore. we recognize how critical infrastructure is in the wake of sandy and other things. i actually think the ingredients are there. i don't think there is one blinding moment where everybody sort of gets religion and says we're going to do it, but we're going to be on our way back. >> some positive signs. economic growth will probably pick up and a good chance we'll get comprehensive immigration reform in 2013, which would be good for any number of reasons. corporate tax reform. there seems to be bipartisan support for that. will we sol

. >> i served with chuck hagel and i know him and done extraordinary work in the united states senate and served the country with val our in vietnam. >> there would be very little republican support for his nomination and in the end of the day very few votes. >> praise from president obama and concern over lindsay graham. we are back now with the panel and the announcement and the president has settled on chuck hagel. why did he pick him? >> only thing i can think of . he believes that hagel as a maverick would not drink the koolaid as the white house sees it on pept gon and military spending and he would be a counter force over there and not an advocate for armed forces that leon panet a. the warnings that we are hearing about the sequester so-called on the pept gon, and the warnings came from paneta, not the white house. leon paneta is warning . that's the reason . otherwise, it is it a very peculliar choice and highly controstrersial guy and not a distingished record in the senate and i am not suggesting that he didn't fight valiently when he was a soldier himself. but he is an odd
on the wealthy and curbing deductions. and obama this is amazing giving way on the notion that taxes have to go up on the middle class. this is it. ultimately it is bad for liberals who want to expand the welfare state. they said the current level of taxation for everyone below $400,000 is appropriate. they can't raise that now over the next two or four years. they can try to run trillion dollars deficits over the next years and hope the fed can keep financing them that was a hidden victory in the fiscal cliff deal. going forward republicans need to think hard about what they want to ask for on the debt deal negotiations and it shouldn't just be spending cuts. ask for progrowth when h measu. we are not going to have bliss tax reform in the next two months or next two years. what could republicans ask for that would be good for the country. progrowth regulatory relief. delaying ob care for year. proenergy policies. there is practical things they could try to ask for that would have some democratic support that they giving the post the ability to issue more bonds, a reasonable deal. >> the one th
contentious we've seen. tell our viewers why. >> it's an unusual process president obama has followed now for the second time on a major cabinet nominee. the first was susan rice's nonnomination to be secretary of state where it was floated out and she ran into a lot of flak and eventually withdraw. the washington press corps seems to have decided this time chuck hagel will be the nominee, but by floating the name out by basically allowing people to speculate on the nomination, already chuck hagel developed opposition. it's a difficult confirmation at a point where the defense department and country don't need a long hiatus in deading who the leadership should be. >> a critical time for the military, withdrawal and draw down from afghanistan as well as potential new hotspots that we could be
